Fall of wickets: 1-3 (Dimuth Karunaratne, 1.6 ov), 2-3 (Kusal Perera, 2.2 ov), 3-62 (Avishka Fernando, 12.5 ov), 4-133 (Kusal Mendis, 29.4 ov), 5-133 (Jeevan Mendis, 29.5 ov), 6-190 (Dhananjaya de Silva, 43.3 ov), 7-200 (Thisara Perera, 45.4 ov), 8-209 (Isuru Udana, 46.4 ov), 9-220 (Lasith Malinga, 48.3 ov)
2.2 to MDKJ Perera, slashed straight down to third man! Two in two and Sri Lanka are tottering already. Reminded of Jayasuriya's dismissal against Srinath that sent an entire nation into tizzy - albeit temporarily - during the 1996 World Cup semi-final in Kolkata. This was short, had enough width, he threw his bat at it to get a thick outside edge, this was in the air for a while, Moeen picked it early, took a few steps in, settled underneath and pouched it quite nicely.. 3/2
1.6 to FDM Karunaratne, got him! It's that lovely, lovely line that does it. Archer has taken out the Sri Lankan captain with one that is moving away but bowled in the channel. Karunaratne follows it with his hands, it's bowled at the perfect line that just draws the bat slightly away from the body, kisses it's edge and goes to the keeper.. 3/1
43.3 to DM de Silva, Root leaps to his left at mid-on and pulls off a super catch. Slower ball, leg-cutter at just 111 kph, pitched on off and moving away. Another mis-timed pull, it was only a matter of time before one of those went to a fielder. This one almost didn't, came off the toe-end and travelled to mid-on, where Root ran to his left and leapt up to pluck the ball.. 190/6
45.4 to NLTC Perera, caught by Rashid diving forward at third man. The short ball works for Jofra, gets it to rise above shoulder height outside off, and Thisara has a slash at it, but without control. The ball flies off a top edge to third man, where Rashid takes a good catch.. 200/7
12.5 to WIA Fernando, he's upper cut it straight down third man's throat! What have you done Avishka, you were looking so in control... Short ball outside off, and for some reason he thought it would be a good idea to just gently upper-cut it, help it along its way as it were - except Adil Rashid was stationed at third man, so it was always a shot with high risk. And he's duly gobbled up, taking a few steps forward. 62/3
46.4 to I Udana, backing away again, Wood does his shtick where he follows the batsman. Bowls it back of a length, no room for Udana to pull, but he goes for it anyway. Gets it high on the bat, and it loops up. Root at mid-on takes a few steps back and settles under it.. 209/8
48.3 to SL Malinga, the old two-card trick works. Quick bouncer followed by inch-perfect yorker. Hits the base of leg stump - Malinga's exposing all his stumps backing away - quicker than Malinga can bring his bat down for his attempted slash through the off side.. 220/9
29.4 to BKG Mendis, slog-swept and brilliantly caught by Morgan! That's a blinder, a goalkeeper save with reverse-cupped hands, low to his left at short midwicket as Mendis pummelled the loose delivery outside off, but didn't quite pick his spot. The drip-drip of spin has forced the error, and now Sri Lanka are in strife. 133/4
29.5 to BMAJ Mendis, caught and bowled! Wow, right up to the bat, a hard-handed push through the line, and Rashid stoops in his followthrough to conquer. Sri Lanka are in freefall now!. 133/5

Fall of wickets: 1-1 (Jonny Bairstow, 0.2 ov), 2-26 (James Vince, 6.5 ov), 3-73 (Eoin Morgan, 18.4 ov), 4-127 (Joe Root, 30.3 ov), 5-144 (Jos Buttler, 32.3 ov), 6-170 (Moeen Ali, 38.3 ov), 7-176 (Chris Woakes, 40.1 ov), 8-178 (Adil Rashid, 40.5 ov), 9-186 (Jofra Archer, 43.4 ov), 10-212 (Mark Wood, 46.6 ov)
0.2 to JM Bairstow, full, straight, Bairstow plays across it on a leg-stump line, and he's gone for his second first-baller of the tournament!. He's reviewing, but I strongly doubt this will change anything. Clipping surely ... indeed it is! Yorkshire's JB has fallen in front of his home crowd!. 1/1
6.5 to JM Vince, edged and gone! Oh lordy, it's like watching the highlights of a Vince Test innings! In the slot, allegedly, but just not quite as there as the previous drive. A thick nick, a tumbling take at slip, and England are ... in some bother. 26/2
30.3 to JE Root, appeal for a catch down legside but the umpire is unmoved. They go for the review. Sri Lanka think they've had Root strangled down leg. Length ball drifting down, Root went to flick it but appeared to not connect. The keeper tumbled to his left and caught it, and went up immediately. And there is a spike! Root will be out. Malinga was brought back for this and he's delivered. Huge wicket.. 127/4
32.3 to JC Buttler, Buttler is lbw! But he has reviewed! That seemed plumb in front, so he must believe there's inside-edge ... maybe off the toe? It was a Malinga special, fast and flat into the pads, slightly leg-sided, like the Bairstow lbw earlier ... no, no edge ... and smashing leg stump!. 144/5
46.6 to MA Wood, edged and it's all over! That was the perfect ball to the No. 11... full, fast, in the corridor of uncertainty... and feathered to the keeper!. 212/10
38.3 to MM Ali, Moeen holes out to long-off! Wow ... he took it on, blood pumping after finding the middle of the bat at last ... he nailed this one too, galloping down the track to meet the pitch, but Udana was waiting, right back on the rope, and plucked a fast-travelling missile with the utmost calm!. 170/6
40.1 to CR Woakes, short and wide outside off and that's a massive breakthrough! Woakes was over-eager, looking to crash a four through point, but he topped a thin edge to the keeper, and one of England's most bankable finishers has failed ... scenes squared!. 176/7
40.5 to AU Rashid, two in the over for de Silva! Incredible meltdown from England, Rashid was driving inside the line, expecting spin but merely feathering another edge to the keeper! This is remarkable!. 178/8
18.4 to EJG Morgan, stunning return catch! Sri Lanka are still alive! Low full toss on the stumps, Morgan drills it back - didn't time it that well but it was to Udana's right and he just stuck both hands out in his follow through and the ball sticks. No repeat of the Afghanistan heroics for Morgan and he's gone.. 73/3
43.4 to JC Archer, smashed to long-on and gone! Archer is livid with himself, he latched onto the length but failed to pick the slower ball, bat-face closing on impact as he spooned his shot down Perera's throat! England ere nine-down, and everything now rests on Stokes finding some urgent boundaries!. 186/9
